    I have been thinking about trying my hand at trading forex. I have used demo accounts in the past and made a bit of "pretend" money, and now i fancy doing it for real. I started an online application for a forex trading account and I see that they ask you about your income and savings, which made me wonder... Do forex brokers allow anyone to trade (as long as your credit rating is ok) or can an application be denied if your income or savings are below a certain level? Also, they ask if i've had any experience in any other trading, stocks, futures, spread betting, etc, to which the answer would be no. Does this matter?

  • My theory on dark matter. How feasible is this?

    Is it possible that this so-called "dark matter" is simply made up of rogue planets and brown dwarfs that are currently undetected by us, and that these may even greatly outnumber the number of stars in our galaxy by more than 1000:1? In my opinion this would be the simplest explanation rather than the concept of it being some exotic form... show more
    Is it possible that this so-called "dark matter" is simply made up of rogue planets and brown dwarfs that are currently undetected by us, and that these may even greatly outnumber the number of stars in our galaxy by more than 1000:1? In my opinion this would be the simplest explanation rather than the concept of it being some exotic form of matter. Our observations so far suggest that small red dwarfs are the most common stars in the galaxy. Is this the case because there is something special about that specific size of body that makes it more likely to form, or is it rather that the smaller bodies are more numerous and the ones smaller than red dwarves are simply too dim to be detected currently? I reckon in the future as our technology progresses, we will find more and more of these smaller bodies and one day we will find that there are many rogue planets/brown dwarves even closer to us than Proxima Centauri. (oh, and btw, i'm not trying to qualify any Nibiru/planet-x doomsday malarkey!)
